April 13

The soldier was given guard duty at 2 AM. He did his best for a while, but at about 4 AM he went to sleep. He awakened to find his commanding officer standing before him.

A Cub Scout troop was half an hour late to its den meeting. The den mother asked them, “Why are you so late?”

“Oh,” said the one boy, “we were helping an old man cross the street.”

“That’s a nice thing for Scouts to do,” said the mother. Then she paused. “But it shouldn’t have taken you a half an hour.”

“Well, you see,” said another boy, “he didn’t want to go.” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 233)

J. Golden Kimball: My brethren and sisters, I want you to be good to me, and help save me. If I can be saved, it is an encouragement to every man, woman and child in Israel to make the effort...God is a good deal kinder to us than we are to ourselves, more kind to us, perhaps than some who hold the priesthood are to each other. (J. Golden Kimball, His Sermons, December 1891-April 1938, edited by Bonnie Taylor, 96)
